Hi everyone! I am new to this site, and will be graduating from an ADN program (Saddleback College in California) in December. I am really wanting to apply out of state for jobs in areas like Boston, NY, Chicago, Minnesota, Texas, Seattle, etc. Any advice for moving out of state for a new job or suggestions for where a mid-20's, single girl should consider? Thanks!!!

Boston is a great city to live in, but to be honest there is no job market for ADN new grads in hospitals here. There's barely a market for BSN new grads and the hospitals in the city are not shy about saying that they will only accept BSN new grads. I'm not trying to discourage you, it doesn't hurt to try and if you're willing to look outside of hospitals or at community hospitals outside of the city, you may find something.

Texas is hiring. Big cities probably WANT BSN but that does not mean they will not take ADN. Smaller cities have a different market and will hire ADN. Consider cities that are within 100 miles of a big city (Texas-speak that is "just down the road").
